10 daily actions that prove you have a fiercely independent nature
By | Jelena Dincic | hackspirit.com
The way I see it, cultivating a fiercely independent nature is a powerful act of self-empowerment.
It’s about embracing your unique identity, pursuing your passions, and making your way in life.
The good news is that independence is not an innate trait; it’s a skill that can be developed through a mindset of self-reliance and a series of deliberate actions.
With that in mind, here are 10 daily actions that will amplify your autonomy and prove to yourself and the world that you have a fiercely independent nature.
Let’s dive right in!
1) You’re financially independent
Now, the reason I put this first is that you can’t be truly independent (let alone fiercely independent) if you rely on others for money.
Fiercely independent people start young – for example, my sister and I both got weekend jobs while we were still in high school (I worked in a library). It felt good being able to buy myself stuff and not have to ask my parents for everything!
So, if you can pay your rent and buy your groceries, and if you don’t depend on your parents or a partner for your financial existence, it proves you’re fiercely independent!
2) You’re self-reliant
Being self-reliant means so many different things.
- It means that when you need something done, you get it done. You don’t wait for someone else to do it. You don’t ask for help unless you REALLY need it.
- It also means that you can take care of yourself – you make money, you cook, you do your own laundry, etc.
- What’s more, you’re resourceful and know how to make the best of what you’ve got.
- Finally, it means that you’re emotionally strong and self-aware. You don’t rely solely on others for emotional support because you have strong coping mechanisms in place.
